The ones I have.
If I had someone else’s talents, I would be them. Not me. Why would I want to be someone else?
I prefer to be who I am because it’s who I’m meant to be.
Mine is a unique design for a specific purpose.
And so is yours.
If that weren’t true, nothing would matter. My life would have no meaning, and neither would yours.
But we all know in our hearts that can’t be true. It’s intuitively illogical.
Some people say we’re caused by accident, chance, or luck and therefore have no intended purpose, meaning, or design.
But did you know only forces can be a cause?
Therefore, since accident, chance, and luck aren’t forces, they can’t be a cause.
They are merely words to describe mathematical probabilities.
Yet, many smart people want to believe they are causal forces anyway, even though they know they aren’t.
Why would they do that?
Because they find purpose in convincing others that life has no purpose.
They gain purpose by stealing it from others.
It empowers them to disempower others.
They write books and pound their pulpit to hollow out their fellow man, whose loss is their gain. Then leave them eviscerated and wandering, without dignity, self-respect, purpose, or meaning.
If only they would stop and reconsider the flaw in their logic, they might see they have more to gain by looking at things the way they are.
That by helping others see, understand, and appreciate their unique design and purpose, they are fulfilling their own.
Because we all share the purpose of helping others see theirs by the value they bring to ours.
